[Reportbug-maint] Bug#894916: reportbug: print "Please install python3-urwid" instead of "Ignored bogus setting for --ui: urwid"

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.10
Severity: minor

When I tried the urwid UI for reportbug I got an error message:

$ reportbug --ui urwid
Ignored bogus setting for --ui: urwid

After installing python3-urwid I got the urwid UI.

I think it would be nicer to get this error message instead:

$ reportbug --ui urwid
Please install python3-urwid to use the urwid UI.
